*Results may vary. The information in this site is NOT to be construed as medical advice. Cirrhosis of the liver is a serious condition and if you have it, you should see a doctor. I am not a doctor and am not able to dispense medical advice. My husband saw a doctor (many of them) and they were able to do things for him that I could not. However, they were unable to recommend alternative treatments, and in MY OPINION they were VERY beneficial to my husband, so I am providing some of that information here. My husband and I tried all of these alternative therapies at our own risk, and if you try them you will be doing the same. At your own risk. No promises are made in this blog. I am not saying there is a cure for cirrhosis or any other condition. However, I believe most people can get well, like my husband did. My husband is alive, happy, productive, functional and has his energy back. He no longer worries about having to go on disability or getting a $577,000 liver transplant. Cirrhosis is a serious condition. He is currently in the fibrosis stage (Stage 2 liver disease), which is still serious. I cannot guarantee you will have the same results. I just want you to know about what worked well for my husband. I hope you will share what you learned with others, and share your story with us as well. This blog was made for YOU! Thanks for visiting!

Israeli Makes Breakthrough Discovery In Liver Disease Treatment

By NoCamels Team April 09, 2013 4 Comments
The past decade has seen a 20 percent increase in liver-disease-related deaths  in the UK. Many of these diseases lead to cirrhosis, a condition which causes scar tissue on the liver (20 percent of alcoholics are said to develop cirrhosis at a certain time because of liver damage).
Now, an Israeli researcher has found a cell in the immune system which is a key factor in battling the life-threatening condition.
Naturally, the human body has mechanisms that prevent internal organs from scarring. The prevention of scarring is done by a cell called Neuroligin 4, which is part of the immune system and is categorized as a Natural Killer (NK) cell. However, researchers at the Hadassah University Medical Center found that over-expression of this cell does the exact opposite.
When a person is suffering from liver disease, such as Hepatitis, or when excessive consumption of alcohol or food damages liver functions, the behavior of Neuroligin 4 changes and becomes damaging.
A reparir mechanism gone wrong

“In their healthy form, the Neuroligin cells kill the scar tissue cells,” explains professor Rifaat Safadi, head of Hadassah’s Liver Unit. In the over expression scenario, he explains, “a mechanism is put into operation that keeps the cells from doing their ‘unscarring’ work.”
The Hadassah study compared blood samples from dozens of patients with cirrhosis to those of a healthy control group. Several years ago, the same research team found that intact NK cells are good for the liver and prevent cirrhosis. The finding was published in the February edition of The Journal of Hepatology and also reported by a group of researchers at the National Institute of Health in the United States.
Next, Hadassah’s researchers plan to investigate whether mutations of Neuroligin 4 also increase the risk of cirrhosis. Hadasit, Hadassah’s Technology Transfer Company, has already patented Neuroligin 4 in hopes of using it to develop treatments to fend off liver disease.


to learn about:

Please note: I am not a doctor and I am only able to tell you what I have learned by doing my own research on the internet, and share with you the things that have worked for my husband. Please remember that Liver Cirrhosis is a very serious disease so I am not saying, do not see a doctor. Doctors have helped my 
husband a lot. But I believe it is wise to do as much research as you can, and find out why 
they are giving you every one of the medications and treatments they are giving you. 
I believe they do not always know about or understand every treatment option that is available, 
and there are many good options out there that can help.
Your health is ultimately your own responsibility, above anyone else's.

Best of luck to you!!!
